Who would’ve thought that it would take me 9 months after having Emma to want to start lifting weights again. Former me would literally walk in the gym and ONLY want to lift...😂
It’s easy to say while your pregnant “I can’t wait until I can workout super hard again” or “I’m gonna get back into the gym exactly when the doctor gives me the all clear"
I was totally one of those people! But when my “time” finally rolled around to get back in the gym - I wasn’t as ready as I thought I would be!
I started to workout again but it was slow and steady and I honestly haven’t lifted consistently until these last few months. I feel like the 3, 6, & 9 month mark are the months where I noticed I felt a little more like myself again.
You can’t rush the process. Don’t let the pressure of “who you used to be” make you feel in a hurry to get back. Everyone is so different, all you can do is take it 1 day and 1 workout at a time. Then the day will come around where you’ll realize you feel more like yourself again and that’s when you will be ready! Don’t rush the motivation - let it find you and avoid burning out the flame before it’s even lit.
Any other mamas feel like this? When did you return to the gym? Did you wait or jump right back in? 💪🏼
